Mindy Kaling reveals her baby’s gender

Mindy Kaling officially revealed the gender of her baby during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, telling the host that she will be having a girl.

The Cambridge native also discussed how she never had a chance to officially announce her pregnancy to the world because a co-star of hers spilled the beans: Oprah Winfrey.

Kaling, who is in the upcoming film A Wrinkle in Time with Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon, told Winfrey her baby news while in a press line at Disney’s D23 Expo, according to People.

Kaling told DeGeneres that, all things considered, having Oprah reveal her pregnancy to the world wasn’t that bad.


“If anyone is going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person,” Kaling told DeGeneres. “You can’t complain that much about it. And you also can’t be like, ‘Hey, Oprah, zip it,’ because she’s almost like a religious figure. So if there’s one person I have to tell my daughter about that revealed her existence to the world, Oprah is pretty good.”
